5 Apps That Help Save the Battery on an Android Device

Short battery life is an issue that’s been faced by almost all smartphone users around the world, especially those who own Android goodies. No matter what mAh battery your manufacturer includes with your device, it will not last as long as you want it to. The reason behind this is the number of features that the manufacturer has integrated in the device. These features eat up a good amount of resources on the device resulting in shorter battery life. However, there have been some solutions that can help you save some of the battery on your device and let you go through the day without hassle. The following are five apps that you should install on your device if you want to make your battery last a bit longer.

1. DU Battery Saver


DU Battery Saver is one of the intelligent apps that helps you gain more battery on your device. What this app does is try to reduce the amount of the battery that is being used without affecting the performance of the device. It uses battery patterns to optimize the settings and even lets you create your own mods, if you prefer it.

If you are not much into geeky things, you can just set “General” as your default mode, and it should work like any normal battery saver app without having you manually configure the settings. The app also provides one-click optimize which both saves your time and makes the task a bit faster. If you are rooted, then you can leverage the CPU Frequency option to decrease the clock speed of your CPU and have your battery work for more time.

2. Easy Battery Saver


User experience is what decides the victory of an app. With Easy Battery Saver, you get an interface that lets you play around with the device’s battery settings without having to go into any complex modes. If your phone is on the verge of dying, this app can rescue it and help you enjoy a few more moments with the device.

The app claims to be saving fifty percent of your battery life, which is quite impressive, so it is worth giving it a shot.

3. GO Battery Saver


The GO Battery Saver app is for those who want to analyze how much battery they can save if they close certain services. For example, it will tell you how much battery you will save if you turn OFF WiFi and Bluetooth. It is more of an adviser that helps you make decisions to save your battery.

4. JuiceDefender


If you are looking for an app that provides lots of options and modes to help you gain more battery, JuiceDefender might be worth a shot. With features ranging from smart brightness to over five battery saving modes, you will have full control over all the aspects of your battery. One of the distinctive features of the app is a location-aware mode that automatically turns OFF your WiFi when you are out and about and turns ON when you are back home. Isn’t it cool?

5. Battery Dr. Saver+Task Killer


Two features, one app. The Battery Dr. Saver app lets you kill tasks that are not in use and helps you save the battery. Along with that, it offers a handful of other features, including full charge alarm that alerts you when your device has been fully charged. The list just goes on.


If you are really concerned about the battery life of your Android device, the above apps should definitely be life-savers for you.
